Finding Four-leaf Clovers

 

Finding a four-leaf clover in itself surely is not a spiritual experience. Some people spend their free time looking for them and have found thousands. Some sell them. I believe, however, that such finding, like any other "lucky" event truly has meaning when it comes as an answer to an inner request.

I have been on the Path for many years now and have had enlightening experiences. However, I choose to tell this story because it is for me a representation that life gives when we stop feeding mental and emotional desires.

So, weeks ago, I was attending a telepathy course. A woman took out a four-leaf clover from a book and said to us she had recently found two and were looking for more to give her daughters. It kind of struck me. Four-leaf clovers... I remembered how, when I was young, my brother and I tried to find some and that I felt frustrated because couldn't find any. I wasn't jealous of that woman there, but I just thought: hey, I would like to find four-leaf clovers. It would be a nice thing. I didn't give myself a reason, and in fact I still don't know why I marveled at the idea of finding some; I'm not a superstitious person and I don't think I need luck. I believe that if you are in true contact with yourself, your mind will be guided by your soul to everything you need. And so, following that event, I tended to look down to clovers when I walked, not anxiously wanting to find a four-leaf one, but just being attentive and Hoping. I kind of put positive energy into this wish.

Now one day, about two weeks later, I was taking a walk pointlessly in my neighborhood. I had just visited a nice little church, and I was walking on the yard of a private high school directed by catholics for the first time. I felt really good, really peaceful, and I found the yard wonderful. I looked at a statue of the virgin Mary of one minute, telling myself how we pictured her as a beautiful person. (I'm not a religious person, but I admire all religions).

I kept on walking and came upon a small amount of clovers and stopped right there as if in shock. I saw them and just thought: Wow, they're... Not the same... They're beautiful, grandiose... You know, as if I had just come to see a most amazing, unusual thing, yet they were just clovers. I bent down... And that's when I saw... A four-leaf clover... And another, and one more... I found 9 in all, but picked 7. At first, I wondered if picking so many wasn't a bit greedy, but I felt those clovers were meant to be picked.

Now, they're in a book, and I intend on giving them to people who are special to me. I have a feeling that if I give them to the right persons, they will inspire them and at the same time make my bonds with them stronger. I have looked up the meaning of four-leaf clovers. Apparently, each leaf stands for something: Love, Hope, Faith and finally Good Luck.

I'm grateful. This story is a reflection of how I lead my life right now. I live the present moment, and I simply, humbly listen to my heart, detached from desires and anticipation. And, everyday seems to me a journey that leads me to whatever answers I need. Because, whatever questions I have, the answers come in time.

It's amazing to hear stories like this one that makes you realize how life is hardly lived in the moment. People spend there entire lives thinking about the past or anticipating the future. Missing the absolute perfection of now. I catch my thoughts drifting too, but at least I'm aware of it. Wish you well on your spiritual journey.

Truely a wonderful story. I yet to find a four leaf clover, not that I think they are lucky but my Irish born guy would like one. If I found one I put it between laminated papers and give to him as a gift of where he is from.

Wow! Yours is a very inspiring story too. Do you believe in reincarnation? Animals are said to reincarnate too, and apparently many dogs and cats come back to previous owners in a new body because they have a mission to accomplish. I am convinced that if Clover is not the reincarnation of your other dog, she is nevertheless on an important mission with you and/or someone of your family. Maybe you should also think about the signification that clovers have for you, because it is obviously trying to tell you a message.
Thank you very much for your story.:)

Hi

I really enjoyed reading your experience of the 4 leaf clovers.

I have an experience to share also.

When I was 8 years old I offered to take our Yellow Labrador Retriever for a walk in the field which was located at the end of our garden.

Anyway our dog decided to take me for a walk instead and dragged me through the grass on my tummy. After a very scary and dirty ride on my tummy my dog decided to suddenly stop running so she could sniff at something.

Well I was still lying on the ground face down when I saw a 4 leaf clover staring up at me... Well I was mesmerised because I had been trying to find a 4 leaf clover for ever.

After many years when I was all grown up and our dog had a longtime passed away.

I was now thinking of buying my first ever puppy... To be honest I did not have my heart in it... As I was thinking that it was a big committent. Anyway after much nagging from my 14 year old son I decide to shop around.

So I then find myself viewing a litter of puppies a mixture of Yellow and Black Labrador Retrievers. When the owner lifted up one of the yellow puppies and handed her to me to hold and then told me that her name was CLOVER. I immediately knew that this was an omen.

Well little Clover is now living at home with us and is 4 months old. She is a little rascal and a lot of hard work but very loveable and I cannot stop thinking that she is here for a reason. That she is meant to be amongst our family. Already she has brought us so much joy within our home.

Thankyou for reading
